Another utica nobody claiming he's better than clapton and is the biggest most famous guitarist that ever lived. Only problem----- Most people have no idea who the jerk is except his 3 rabid family members and fans that just won't let it die.

No Jay Leno
No Conan
No Letterman
No Soundtracks
No smash hit records
No REAL record label
No name recognition
No talent
No looks
No voice
No sale Joe!

Poor Joe, he'd be world famous if like 20 other guitarists weren't BETTER and had actual HITs!

Same ol Moe is more *famous* than joe ever dreamed. He was ok but fizzled. Thats why he plays to highschool halls now. Hes never filled a show with over 5000 seats on the strength of his own name that's why hes considered a *hasbeen*.

This is because uticans are amaed at anything even resembling success. If he was anybody he'd be all over the web and all over tv even Roy Buchanon still has a presence this utica upstart never did anything with himself and the locals are still all amazed and impressed. Remember uticans are still impressed with "soap"!

He can't be famous when nobody has ever heard of him. I think the reason his brief career never got off the ground has nothing to do with his guitar playing ability. It has more to do with a lack of marketing and coaching. It has everything to do with a lack of publicity and the fact that he plays an unpopular style of music. If in the early days he had gotten some vocal coaching it would have made a difference. If he had worked with other musicians in a band instead of being a solo act, it would have helped. Its no secret that being succesful in the music world is 95% image and 5% talent. You can have all the talent you want, and talent certainly is important, but it won't get you anywhere without the right image.

Oh gee they went and fluffed up the losers fake wikipedia big deal! He's still an unknown. I'm sure it talks all about how he was once seen with clapton and BB King. You know the usual "accomplishments" joe cites over and over and over thinking it means he's an "equal" in their own words. I wonder how big fat and bloated he's made his stupid wikipedia page now and what new delusions of grandeur he's having lol!

Hi food stamps. No reason to be jealous Joe has a wiki page, just tell LE how your dad touches you and you can have a page instead of your trash family praying they could get through life with Obama feeding the trash. Tell mom just because her one hit failed ( take anyone cumguzzler ) is no reason not to wash.

YEs Joe Bonnamassas mental father Len or someone that wants to be famous no matter how smalltime he is. More people know who Rick Derringer is that this flash in the pan from B.E.J. "Before Eric Johnson"! LMAO! Call us when you do some nationally televised performances or maybe VH1 shows who you are like your idols Eric Clapton SRV and EJ! Bye little niche man wanabee! We'll wave from the bus on the way by your school dance "concert"! Too frikking funny the mental man just lives in his own world instead of on the ground where his name recognition and sales are!

Well, it is obvious that Joe Bonomassa is not famous. This is becuase 99.999999999999999999999% of the population have not heard of him. In order for someone to be famous, your name has to be instantly recognizable to over 99% of us. Since Joe B. is a virtual unknown, he is not famous. Any attempt to make him famous is futile, as fame can't be created just by wishing it. Oh, and that awfully embelished Wikipedia page, anyone can write almost anything they want to on Wikipedia. That page is such a joke!

The Wikipedia page is obviously written by Joe or his daddy. There is no substance there. Joe Bonoassa will not become famous no matter how much he wants us to believe he is.

Since you live in the Utica bubble, you're not really a part if the real population. If you could escape the gravitational pull of small town ignorance (like Joe has) then you'd see that. In the mean time please just STFU - you're annoying the real population. Go watch VH-1. LOL!!

You are possibly correct... Nobody outside of Utica has heard of Joe. I just did a quick google search and in addition to the Wikipedia page I found out that he:

was guitarist of the year in 2012:
http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/News/sl...

http://amfmstudios.com/magazine/2012/01/joe-b...

has a custom guitar named after him that is sold by Gibson:
http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guit...

has an about.com page about him:
http://blues.about.com/od/artistprofiles/p/Jo...

There are just too many other things to list that could indicate the possibility that no one outside of utica knows who Joe Bonamassa is....
who is this clown

But hes still an unknown no matter how many insignificant little facts you post loser. ANY guitarist can have guitars made by Gibson idiot. Gibson guitars are old furniture anymore. He plays ornimental furniture? lol! Write a check they'll make it however you want that means nothing.Nor do all the little free pages he and his Clapton blowing father create in their ample free time.

Look can you get it through your pinhead for once the guy is NOT "famous" or accomplished by anyones imagination. He has no hit songs and no airplay no matter how many famous people he stood on a dance hall stage with. If he were famous he'd be on national tv and on national radio playlists. He's neither and it isn't looking "up" lmao!! The more you rant on on topix about how supposedly well known he is the more pathetic and desperate you look. If here was famous then I guess that means people would know who the hell he was instead of a nobody from utica that uticans claim is "famous" because they think utica is the center of the universe. The internet makes it easy to see he's basically a nobody that failed years ago and his hangers on can't stop jacking themselves off over his big "accomplishments".

Call us when Kimmel or Leno calls for his big national break ok?
